Three sleeps in and it's entirely possible this is the most comfortable mattress in our house right now. One of these nights we'll have to move back to the Master bedroom but I'm really enjoying sleeping on our new Cocoon by Sealy Mattress in our guest room. It's a foam mattress and it set up in 5 minutes - literally. Watch the video to see how … [Read more...]

Of course they still have them but there are so many cooler options these days like these Hatch 'Em's from Animal Planet that are kind of perfect for the Easter basket since they batch out of … [Read more...]

People comment on my Sticky9 photo magnets on our fridge all of the time. Sticky9 creates cute little square photos for you at a reasonable price! It's $15.99 for a sheet of 6 photos and they are adorable on the fridge.

I used to have this dining room. It had a table. Some chairs. A couple of pieces of wall art. And it was okay. I'm going to say the best word to describe it was this: functional. We had meals in there, some adult game nights. While there was nothing too special about but I liked it well enough. Years went by and I thought it was time for a … [Read more...]

This is my dining room table. My husband and I first got this table when we got married over 14 years ago! We bought it from Crate & Barrel and while it's served us well, it's seen better days. When we bought it, it was actually on the showroom floor as an intended kitchen table or really casual dining table which is what drew us to it - … [Read more...]

Another brand I met at Sweet Suite last week in New York City was the makers behind the Perfect Drink. I think this may have been one of the first booths I visited, cuz hey, I can sniff out a good cocktail better than most ;-) They were making margaritas so I had to try one - all in the name of transparent reviewing, right? The Perfect Drink … [Read more...]

Over time this becomes a really cool tapestry/journal of your travels as a family or on your own. You can pick a Scratch Foil Gold or Silver Map - they are both on sale … [Read more...]

I'm always feeling very stylish when I'm carrying one of my Mixed Bag Designs bag. These reusable bags may not be holding anything too stylish if you're using them for groceries as I do, but you sure as heck look cute with one of these on your shoulder! I first learned about Mixed Bag Designs at a blogging event years ago and have been hooked on … [Read more...]

We've really gotten into Halloween the last  couple of years around our house.   The kids just love it and I swear I go just as crazy with the decorations this time of year as I do for Christmas, even more so maybe ever since I did a campaign with Kmart for Halloween and we really stocked up on goodies.  Last year we had bloody chains and zombie … [Read more...]
